Here is a concise and authoritative survey of the rich and complex arts of Japan, from the prehistoric period right up to the present, now with a new chapter on the latest developments and trends in Japanese art, including manga and anime, and discussion of world-famous artists, architects and photographers such as Nakaya Fujiko, Yayoi Kusama, Yoko Ono, Ando Tadao and Daido Moriyama. Throughout, the author selects the finest examples to illustrate the story and puts the art into its historical, political and cultural context, providing a greater understanding for both students and those new to the subject, and offering an essential guide to the distinctive arts of Japan.
Covers the prehistoric period through Japan today and seeks to capture the essence of Japanese culture, which embraces balance, harmony, humor, and human imperfection. [Stanley-Baker] aims to communicate the sense of union between the art and the artist, as well as the ability of Japanese art and culture to absorb the ideas and influences of other cultures into its own.
